Supporting The Youth & Community
Supporting the youth in our community is one of the core principles of Capital Credit Union. Every year we dedicate thousands of euro in sponsorship to our developing communities to support young people. This year is no different and we have a variety of schemes to support our younger members.
For those in Primary School, our very popular School Saving Scheme teaches children the importance of regular savings. By saving just 5 times between September and May, students will be placed in a draw to win €100. There is a €100 prize in each branch and students can submit as many Savers Reward Cards as they like! We also donate €10 to the child’s school for every completed Savers Reward Card as long as the school is located in our catchment area!
- We also host the Annual Credit Union School Quiz every year! This is a great opportunity for kids from different schools to meet and est their wits against each other! If you’re school would like to enter, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
For Secondary School students, we know from the fantastic support for the FridaysForFuture campaign that secondary school students are really interested in how they can help in the climate action fight! That is why this year, we have set up a grant of €2,000 for 4 secondary schools in our catchment to help towards their Green Schools Initiative. Any school in our catchment area can apply for funding and you can get more information by emailing email@example.com
And finally, we haven’t forgotten students planning further study. In fact, we have even more to offer them! This year everyone studying from a PLC to a PhD can apply for one of our Further Education Scholarships! The total prize pot is €18,000 and the draw is completely random so everyone has an equal chance of winning! Click here to apply today
